Pooch-Meagan-atCAU-MeetnGreet
We got the chance to speak with Megan Good and Pooch Hall who are currently on a promotional tour in Atlanta for their upcoming film Jumping The Broom/meet and greet at Clark Atlanta University. Megan was ab open book and allowed us to ask her any question about her life. One question we were all eager to know was if the allegations of her wanting to play the late great Aaliyah was true. The Aaliyah Warner Brothers Films was going to start filming a year ago a biopic based on Aaliyah’s life. The film will be directed by Bill Condon, the director behind the award-winning blockbuster, Dreamgirls. Canadian singer and former girlfriend of highly popular rapper Drake, Keshia Chanté (pictured below) is set to play the late singer.

The film is also reported to carry an impressive $80 million production budget and is set for a national release date for some time next year. At this time, it is unknown if Aaliyah’s boyfriend at the time of her death, co-founder of Rocafella Records and owner of multimedia compound and art gallery DD172, Damon Dash will partake in the film. Dash and Aaliyah had plans to wed at the time of her death.

Good reveals that it’s one of her dreams and would be a great honor if she were given the opportunity. She also tells us she spoke to the family about it and they are up for it but the issue of her death is still very sensitive for their family at this time.

For the past month or so, we have been exclusively covering the unfortunate beef between RL and particular members from the group Jagged Edge. It publicly began between RL and one of the twins of JE over him not wanting to take a group picture with RL for some reason which led many to believe the feuding began prior to the initial public blowout.

RL briefly spoke on the incident via live interview that night, and by the next morning went viral in the matter of hours reaching over 100,000 viewers by day one. This did not sit well with the members of JE and weeks later at Q of the R&B group 112’s birthday party Kyle of JE expressed himself publicly in front of the masses lashing out on RL who also happened to be in the atmosphere as well.

So, now that all the drama has calmed, Kyle has had a minute to reflect on his public outburst and has realized that his actions were of not his nature and wanted ti issue out a public apology to RL and disrespecting Q at his birthday party. He has realized that there is a time and place for everything and sometimes things need to be handled privately and in a more mature manner.

Kyle hit up your boy FreddyO and offered to give me the exclusive interview to his humble apology to let the world know that at the end of the day there is really nothing but love between the R&B group members of Jagged Edge, Next, and 112.

“I was offered a tour with my band but Jaden was asked to film ‘The Pursuit of Happyness.’ He was seven and a half. Could I really let my little boy go and do a film without me being there? I canceled the tour. I canceled everything. I went to look after Jaden.”

She added that she put more of her life on hold when it came time to launch Willow’s career. READ MORE
